Every time we come to Israel which is about 3 times a year, we have to eat at Cafe Noir. Today we were 8 for lunch and had the best lunch as always. For the first course we ordered Tomato with Mozzarella with Pesto dressing, it is to die for. For the main course, 6 of us got chicken shnitzel... More

On a cold a rainy day we stepped into this cosy cafe just off Rothschild Boulevard. It has a European feel and vibe with some Israeli dishes on the menu. It's not kosher. Portions are big and the food fresh and tasty but not cheap. The veal schnitzel was excellent. Free wifi and service is good.

When in TA,which is 4 times per year, this is my must stop the day of arrival. Not only for the food, but for the great ambiance of the restaurant. Be aware that besides the schnitzel Noir has a great menu as well as great daily specials.

We spent Friday evening as part of our anniversary celebration. Service was attentive and helpful. Food was very good, the wine as well. We were disappointed that they didn't have pisco sour (was on the cocktail list) but the wine was good. Nice atmosphere. Must make reservations for the weekend a week in advance.

Though the food is not authentic (an Italian would never approve of their Caprese salad or any of the pasta dishes) I think people come here with friends for the ambiance. Service was pleasant and so efficient it was not difficult to guess that most things are already pre-cooked. I ordered risotto and it arrived in 5 minutes, you do... More

Description
Café Noir is a long-established bistro in the heart of Tel Aviv's city, strategically placed between the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange and Rothschild Boulevard. It's considered aninstitution by Tel Avivians, and our regular customers are business and media people, artists and in fact anyone who appreciates a terrific atmosphere and good food.Cafe Noir extends over two levels, offering a choiceof intimate sitting areas and spacious seating that's equally suitable for businessmeetings or family celebration. The décor comprises dark wood furniture in classicstyle, a spacious and inviting bar, with oil paintings on the walls and art objects arranged on surrounding shelves. Soft lighting effects create the perfect dining atmosphere. On fine days we have outside seating so guests can watch the bustling life on the streets of Tel - Aviv.Café Noir is busy throughout the day and until the small hours – some enjoying a hearty breakfast, others dropping in for a business meeting, and later evening drinks at thebar.We offer a rich menu – such as our lunchtime starter of liver pate with pear confit, sirloin Carpaccio, and chilli shrimps. For main courses, it's a tough decision choosing between our renowned Café Noir schnitzels - chicken breast, pork, or milk-fed veal - and the meat dishes, lamb kebabs, hamburgers, entrecote. Fish, salads and seafood are always reliable options.
